Enable/Disable VMware High Availability

VMware HA shows off in Vsphere Client 5.1.0. I would like to know if there is any negative impact before I enable HA.

Thank you

Shouldn't be any by just enabling it.  You would want to make sure you have the resources to move servers around.  Also make the the hardware is compatible host to host for you might have to enable EVC mode.

There is no negative impact of enabling VMware HA.

But check you have correctly followed the instructions and have met the prerequistes for installing. e.g. networking is correct.

Once you have Enabled VMware HA - make sure you test it correctly.

Are all your ESXi Host Servers the same, e.g. make and model, CPU and RAM?

they are Dell Poweredge R710

2ESX= 8 CPUs x 2.659GHz RAM=14446.10MB
4ESX= 12 CPUsx 2.659GHz RAM =98294.02MB

All 6 ESXs are in the same Cluster

Should be no issues, if a server fails, but just keep an eye on the resources, because your servers are different specifications, and are not balanced. e.g. same RAM and CPUs!
